    I guess someone should have started this thread, so I did. Sticky it?

    Random Thought:
    Just passed by it, 1747 had a breakdown at Douglaston Pkwy and Northern Blvd, heading towards Flushing. It was pulled over at the bus stop.

    And 1631 looks like it had it's destination sign changed. The font looks bolder.

    1708 and a few other older NGs have no rear number.

    The garbage is probably from sometime today.

    Spoke the Driver all the way to Roosevelt Field he said 1802 was in an accident today. He also told me he did maintenance and was asked to drive route due to the shortage of drivers.

    In my opinion, the OG's are riding and sounding better than before while the NG's are the same if not a bit rougher.

    The cleanliness has remained roughly the same.

    Oh no, I see 1802 daily doing the N20 to Great Neck. Any details? Was it a major crash?

    And shortage of drivers? They just hired hundreds of drivers at the beginning of the year. Are people quitting?

    The crash was on Mineola BLVD he was doing a 22 at around 3 I was told he sent a Nissan Muarno into a pole.

    People retired from the MTA maybe too many?

    Is it possible that the shortage of drivers is just until April 8th since they will be using less buses then?

    And its always an 1800 hurt, isn't it?

    I don't think much will change. NICE is probably still stressing the drivers with making many runs.
